About This Book
This popular writer just keeps getting better and better, and this sharp,
intelligent, suspenseful novel is sure to win him a lot of new fans. As
children, Jimmy, Sean, and Dave have an odd kind of friendship, born more of
geographical convenience than any actual affection for one another. A
quarter-century later, Sean is a Boston police officer, Jimmy is an ex-con, and
Dave is . . . well, let's just say he's got a lot of things to hide, including
the truth behind something that happened a long time ago. When Jimmy's daughter
is murdered, the three former friends are thrown together again, but this time
at least one of them apparently is bound for self-destruction. Lehane's steadily
growing reputation has been based, up until now, on his superlative Patrick
Kenzie-Angie Gennaro series. Here he proves equally adept outside the series
structure. Lehane is one of the small group of crime writers whose novels reveal
a deep fascination with people, with motivation and inner turmoil and the subtle
things that make characters walk off the page. As with the best crime writers,
we rarely worry about solving a puzzle when we read Lehane. His people are too
compelling for that. It's time to stop talking about Lehane as an up-and-coming
genre star and acknowledge that he is one of our best fiction writers period.
